GLOBAL ENVIRONMENTAL CHANGE AND HUMAN SECURITY (GECS-2012): THE NEED FOR A NEW VISION FOR SCIENCE, POLICY AND LEADERSHIP (CLIMATE CHANGE AS AN OPPORTUNITY)Environmental change in general and climate change in particular, presents a major challenge for development and poverty eradication. Millions of poor people around the world are vulnerable to environmental change impacts on ecosystems, water and agriculture. Hence, the threats to human security are increasingly considered both by research and decision spheres. There is a relation between poverty in low-income countries and economies heavy dependent on weather-sensitive resources, such as agriculture. Given the importance to these issues GECS2012 was organized in Marrakech.
